International Filmmaker Deadline: Submit to DOK Leipzig Co-Production Meeting by August 1

Posted on July 23, 2012

European and other international producers are invited to submit projects to the 8th International DOK Leipzig Co-Production Meeting (October 29-31, 2012). The final deadline for project submission is August 1, 2012.


The Meeting encourages international co-productions and helps finance outstanding documentary projects for an international audience.

The program is looking for: • Courageous, talented documentary film producers seeking to establish new contacts and find co-production partners. • Good documentary film projects in development, which – in the best case – are already partially financed and of real interest for international audiences. • Producers who have successfully worked in their national market and who strive to work internationally with European partners. Experience in international co-production is preferable, but not a prerequisite. 

Costs: Participation costs per project are 190,40 Euros (incl. 19% VAT). These costs include one accreditation per project and the participation in all events linked to the Co-Production Meeting for one (max two) participants per project. Single film projects, documentary series, and cross media projects are welcome. Companies can submit applications for up to two projects. For further questions or information, please contact Christine Hille ( & +49-341-30 864-27) or Brigid O’Shea ( You can also find more information on the program's website.
